You Down With DCP's?

   I'm home from Rome! The hubs and I had a wonderful time walking around the city and enjoying all the sites. Everywhere we went it was like we had to just stand there for a few minutes and absorb it all. To be in the Roman Coloseum where the Emperor Nero once stood and where gladiator games and more took place...it was simply amazing.

   Something that wasn't so amazing about Rome...DROP CROTCH PANTS! Since I've lived in Italy for 3 years I don't know if this trend really made it into the spotlight in the states, but this is one trend that I didn't try and I probably never will. Everywhere I looked in Rome there were drop crotch pants, we'll call them DCP's. They were on young people, old people, men, women, children....all around.


Pants



Yes, not the kind that are just a little baggy, but the whole crotch is just disconnecting itself like it's trying to run away. I'm sure there is someone out there who can pull these off but I look ridiculous in DCP's. It's obvious they weren't made to flatter any part of the body. 

American Apparel pants


   Even though I've now seen my share of baggy crotches in Rome, these women do have some great shoes. I spotted a few, completely genuine, Christian Louboutins, Pradas, Miu Miu's and more. I would sit down and "shoe watch" as everyone passed by and now want to kick myself for not taking pictures. 

   I will probably break up my Rome pics for you all into a few separate posts because there is just so much to show and tell. Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!

Post Baby Body...Planning Ahead

I'm over half way to meeting our new little princess! At this stage in the pregnancy I'm also thinking about anything and everything having to do with a 3rd child and all the changes that will be happening in my house. Quite honestly, I'm freaking out a little. Of course I'm doing all the typical things parents do when prepping for a new arrival, but I've also decided to take the time to focus on myself while I still can. 

   27 weeks pregnant, which means in 13 weeks or less I will be meeting our new tiny princess. One of the things women typically worry about with pregnancy is the ever so dreaded weight gain that comes with the territory. I can happily say that I've done extremely well with this pregnancy and so far only had a 12 pound gain. But as we all know, the 3rd trimester tends to have the largest weight gain. Since I probably won't have a ton of extra down time once the baby arrives, I've decided to go ahead and start planning to lose the ba…

IPSY: December Glam Bag Review

I will be reviewing the products I received in my December Ipsy bag since I've had the chance to test them out for about a month now. If you don't know already here's the spill. Instead of doing an "unboxing" type of post, I review the products over the course of a month and then let you know what I thought and all the product details. If you didn't see my November bag review you can check it out HERE.

   This post is a bit late, but we'll be getting back on track for February.
   Here's what I received in my December Ipsy Bag...



1). December's Glam Bag- Not going to lie, this month's bag was a disappointment for sure; it felt cheap, was flimsy, and the zipper was in a weird spot. I will probably end up giving it to my daughter to keep her play makeup in.

2). NYX Butter Lip Balm in Red Velvet- Retails for $4.00 (this is the full size)
   I'm not a big tinted lip balm fan, I'd rather just wear a lipstick. This is the first NYX balm I…

Warming The Soul

The weather has been viciously cold in many parts of the United States this winter. If you are anything like me, that means hot delicious soup to warm the mind, body and soul. Soup is a comfort food staple and I feel like people are more drawn to it between October and March, that's especially true for my family. With Florida weather it's just almost too hot for soup any other time of year unless is storming and chilly out.

   Pinterest is my absolute favorite place to find new recipes, so I wanted to share a few of my soup pins with you. I've made all of these except one, which I'll make a note of below, and they've all turned out delicious.


1). Crab & Corn Chowder- This soup is absolutely delicious and hearty. For me, it was something different and unexpected. Growing up in Kentucky we didn't make soups like this, mom always served chili, potato, or broccoli cheddar soup because those are the southern specialties. If you make any of these soups, please …
